Paul Merson states his prediction for Southampton v Man United

Paul Merson states his prediction for Southampton v Man United

Mourinho was in a defiant mood after the match, insisting that he has no option than to rest his best players in the Premier League due to their European commitments, and he went as far as to claim that the game against Spurs and this week's encounter with Southampton and Crystal Palace were "matches we don't want to play".

"After 14 matches we are in the final".

It's clear that winning the Europa League final and achieving qualification to the Champions League through that route is Jose Mourinho's priority, and the United boss has already confirmed one starter for the all-important game in Stockholm.

"The best thing about it is that you've earned it".

"You know that in all of my career I was never out of European competitions in the group phases". But one day off you are right, sometimes you need a day off and they don't know what a day off is.

Asked what had made it such a tough season, he replied: "The players and the club". But when I analyse my work I know what I had to do. I don't know what is important for them.

"But again, I accept that to your eyes are the football results that make that decision and I'm ready for that".

The statement said that the US communicated its concerns to the Turkish government "in the strongest possible terms". They "began aggressively provoking Turkish-American citizens who had peacefully assembled to greet the President".

Mourinho added: "I can not go to Man City or Arsenal and put out five kids at the same time altogether".

"We have three league matches to play".

This adds huge significance to the Europa League final against Ajax later this month.

United goalkeeper Sergio Romero needed to stretch to turn an early shot from Iago Aspas over the bar and after Fellaini's goal they tried to put the game to bed.

Goals from Victory Wanyama and Harry Kane dealt a second straight Premier League defeat to Mourinho's side, despite Wayne Rooney's second-half consolation in the final match at White Hart Lane.

"They are so friends and they support each other all the time". But like this I never have, I never have. I always saw them supporting each other.

"It's hard but we know what we are doing and I don't know other clubs, I don't know the way they think, I don't know what is important for them", he said after the Spurs defeat.
